The history and importance of trees in Stonehouse.
On September 9th at 7.30 pm the Arboricultural Association hosted a free live webinar for the Stonehouse History Group. Technical Director John Parker delivered a presentation about the trees of Stonehouse, looking at the history of the town through trees and focusing on some of the best specimens in the area. This was a great opportunity to learn more about some of the fantastic trees – and the interesting social history – in Stonehouse.
